Integral Fast Reactor - Safety
... In traditional light water reactors (LWRs) the core must be maintained at a high pressure to keep the water liquid at high temperatures ... The IFR also has passive safety advantages as compared with conventional LWRs ... Most LWRs also have negative reactivity coefficients however, in an IFR, this effect is strong enough to stop the reactor from reaching core damage without ...
Traveling Wave Reactor - Fuel
... Unlike light-water reactors (LWRs), TWRs use only a small amount (~10%) of enriched uranium-235 or other fissile fuel to initiate the nuclear reaction ... per kilowatt-hour of electricity than do LWRs, owing to TWRs' higher fuel burnup, energy density and thermal efficiency ... In principle, TWRs are capable of burning spent fuel from LWRs, which is currently discarded as radioactive waste ...
Nuclear Fusion-fission Hybrid - See Also
... is also capable of consuming wastes from LWRs and using depleted Uranium as a fuel ... thorium fluoride salt fuel, capable of consuming wastes from LWRs ... site, capable of consuming wastes from LWRs and using depleted Uranium as a fuel ...
North Korea–United States Relations - Denuclearization of The Korean Peninsula
... reactors with light water reactor (LWR) power plants, to be financed and supplied by an international consortium (later identified as the Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization or KEDO ... obligations to replace the dangerous graphite-moderated reactors with LWRs ... North Korea agreed to accept the decisions of KEDO, the financier and supplier of the LWRs, with respect to provision of the reactors ...
Breeder Reactor
... usually lack the low-speed "thermal neutron" resonances of fissile fuels used in LWRs ... Today's LWRs do breed some plutonium ... However, LWRs are not able to consume all the plutonium and minor actinides they produce ...
